Congratulations on receiving your offer to study biochemistry at Bristol!

What to expect when you join us at one of our UCAS offer holder visit days

We hope your visit day will help you decide that Bristol is the right university for you. It's an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about studying at Bristol and to experience what it might be like to be part of our biochemistry community at the University of Bristol.

  • see how our state-of-the-art eBiolabs online learning facility helps you get the most out of our Biochemistry practical classes and tutorials
  • meet current biochemistry students, academic staff and your potential colleagues next year
  • find out more about your course and the way it will be taught
  • ask any questions you might have about studying biochemistry at Bristol
  • get a taste for the way we teach through example research presentations
